You Know When…

You know when you are in the middle of reading a good book then you get an email that a new book has been released from one of your favorite authors …. your like do I stop reading the book I’m in the middle of and start reading the new book?

Well, I hate to say it … I ditched the current book I promise I’ll get back to soon… I’ve just been waiting so long for this new book to be released.  It’s funny how we get so invested in these characters…

Title:  Hard ( The Filthy *(&^^ MC Romance)

Author: Scott Hildreth

Release Date: July 8, 2016

My Stars: 5

https://www.amazon.com/HARD-Romance-Filthy-ckers-Book-ebook/dp/B01I6562CU/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1468161830&sr=1-1&keywords=hard+scott+hildreth

Okay let me first state I don’t read a lot of MC romance, but with that being said I do like this author and have read a lot of his books, but not all.  He is actually one of my favorite authors due to the fact when I read one of his books it like I’m sitting down with a cup of coffee, ok lets get real a glass of wine ; ) and just having a conversation the book and I.  Really love those type of books don’t you?

If you have read any of Mr. Hildreth’s books you will know that he pretty much always weaves some type of lesson in his stories.  I don’t know if lesson is the right word to use, but it is what comes to mind.  I think the lesson in this book or should I say 1 of the lesson’s in this book is  the old saying ” Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover”.   If  you decided to read this book lets just say you will probably read it in one sitting,  It will leave you thinking about a lot of different things that we as a society face today. It did me

Crip/ Nick Navarro- A little bit older, a little bit wiser, and whole lot of ink.  Is a former Navy Seal who upon his return of 15 years at war felt like his country let him down.  He decided to start his own M.C.  He lives by his own set of laws, of what he feels is right and wrong.

“The Reporter” / Peyton Price-  a journalist who is tasked with the job of writing a story about the FFMC.  She is a little free spirted adventure junkie, who in her own way is living her live by her own set rules also.  She just didn’t realize how this assignment would change her life and her outlook on life.  While with the FFMC tragedy strikes  and never imagine her assignment would end up being her story.

Pee Bee The SAA, Best Friend, former college football player and very much his own ideas. ( I can’t wait to see where Mr. Hildreth takes his character)

Lets just say wrongs were righted, friendships made and just maybe the beginnings of a HEA.

If you decide to read this book please read the Authors note and dedication.  This book will leave you thinking about a number of different things.

Oh My

Still going to the Dr’s every Monday… blood cells are all crazy according to the Dr.  But I feel good… So I guess the Dr.’s version of crazy is my normal HA!!  Had to go to another Dr. this week  I guess I’ve added Rheumatology to my lists of visits,  He was pretty cool guy, bow tie and everything.

Been reading a lot,  what else is there to do when you sitting in a waiting room… I’ve read some pretty good books need to get them on here and share all of them are on the kindle unlimited

Mother is in town, one of Nieces has gone wild, daughter decided if school goes south for her she is going to be an “animal adoption worker”  hey works for me.  When she told her father and I “if school goes south” I swear it was all I could do to keep from laughing.  I mean really how south can the 2nd grade go?  I better not ask that questions because according to her it can go really south.

Title: Crow Boston Underground Series

Author: A. Zavarelli

Release Date: February 8, 2016

My Rating:  4 1/2 Stars

http://www.amazon.com/CROW-Boston-Underworld-Book-1-ebook/dp/B01BL9GFK2/ref=pd_sim_351_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=51%2BAhhXkd2L&dpSrc=sims&preST=_UX300_PJku-sticker-v3%2CTopRight%2C0%2C-44_OU01_AC_UL160_SR100%2C160_&refRID=0BVRX2YZ8RRDXB5M6D6C

First let me say I was a little let down the last little bit, when I was hunting for something to read and I just couldn’t find anything I could stick with then I came across this little gem.  This is the 1st book  I have read from Ms. Zavarelli, but I did stalk her website looking for the next installment of this series… looks like I’m gonna have to wait a little bit, but did find a few other books of her I am going to try.   And, I might be a little bit bias when it comes to organized crime books, whether its true crime or fiction… Maybe because I’m from the east coast, maybe its because I grew up in an Irish/Italian home or was that in and Italian/ Irish home… guess it depends on what set of grandparents’ I was with at the time 🙂  Anyhoo on to the story

I truly enjoyed this book it had just the right amount of everything… crime, drama, love, hate, loss, sexy … I mean I was even late getting to meet my hay guy those who have horses know your never late to me the hay guy.  but I got so into this book I had to make a 30 minute trip in 12.    I love the fact it that it is written in a way you can hear the Irish dilect in your head as your reading…  The heroine Mackenzie was just the right amount of strength and vulnerability.  I don’t know about everyone else I want a girl to stand up for herself or at least try to.   Lachlan ( Gosh, I love that name)   he’s my new book boyfriend of the week.

Mackenzie she grew up in the streets and foster care after the death of her father who was an illegal fighter for the underground.  Mack’s friend went to work for Irish Mob owned bar, then goes missing.  Mackenzie was trying to find her friend, but she couldn’t just walk into the bar asking about her because that just doesn’t work with the Mob.  She was just trying to get close to a solider in the mob to find out about her friend.  Her plan was to fight her way in, which she does in a boxing ring.  She defeats one of the Mob’s own and that is how she mets Lachlan the soon to be underboss.  She thought she would get in, get her information, find her friend and get out.  She never thought  she would fall in love with Lachlan… Or for that matter she never thought Lachlan would ever fall in love with her.  She never shows emotion, she has learned to depend on herself.   Its a really bumpy ride to the end, but so worth the read.

What I’m Reading

First I’m going to say I had a hard time finding a book to read this week.  It seemed like I started at least 10 books this week and I could not get past the first couple of chapters in any of them.    I think my kindle thought I was a little bit crazy,  you know buy, download, delete and repeat.  Then I thought maybe I change the genre you know I started out with the usual chick – lit romance… nope wasn’t working… then I hoped to a biography memoirs type… not happening…  Mystery / Suspense  figured it out in the 1st chapter…  Dystopian and I usually love those… and I thought a good Zombie slasher book… I just couldn’t find anything to hold my interest so what am I to do?  I guess it time for spring cleaning around here and reset my brain.   God knows the horses could use a good brushing because the hair is flying I tell you… And I will continue the search.
